Interzoo 2022

Interzoo, Germany
24-27 May 2022

Nuremberg is once again set to host the world’s biggest trade fair for pet supplies which was postponed from 2020 to 24-27 May 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The show will offer your company an ideal platform from which to present products to a qualified professional audience and to boost sales, as more than 38,600 visitors travel to Nuremberg from over 126 countries.

At the last edition of this pivotal bi-ennial fair for British companies, in 2018, the largest PetQuip-organised British group thus far took part and it comprised 56 exhibitors that were located predominantly in the UK pavilion which had a prime spot at the front of hall 9, or they were elsewhere on the Nuremberg site. It was an extremely successful fair for the group and post show feedback was positive with many new distributorships being signed at the show or later as a result of it.

Interzoo is an ideal opportunity to showcase products to the world and is by far the most important overseas exhibition for the British pet care industry with an expanse of over 120,000 square metres of exhibits. Trade buyers visit the show from every continent: 74 per cent of those at Interzoo 2018 came from outside Germany and 94 per cent of the exhibitors made new business contacts and were happy with the quality of visitors met. Themes like equestrian sports, pet food technology, shop fittings, IT systems etc. are represented as well as traditional products for dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, aquaria and terraria.

PetQuip is organising the British group at Interzoo 2022 and has once again secured a prime spot for the British Pavilion. Please see the downloads below for further information and to book a stand.

July 2021: Update on Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP): The Government has decided with the Treasury that a new trade support initiative will be launched in the Autumn and that in the meantime it has halted the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP).

Until it announces in the Autumn what will replace this scheme, we have been told that it is possible for exhibitors to apply for a grant as part of the Internationalisation Fund in order to take part in one or two trade show participations. Please click on the following link for a short precis on the Internationalisation Fund and what it comprises: DIT Internationalisation Fund.

You can find details of how to apply via your local International Trade Advisor (ITA). The PetQuip team can help with these contact details if you are not currently working with an ITA, please get in touch if you need assistance to do this.
In the meantime, if you are considering participating in one or more international trade exhibitions in the next 12 months, we urge you to contact the PetQuip team to book your stand space, as prime show sites and space may be reduced following the pandemic and only limited options may be available later.
